"Our third- and fourth-year medical students have a tremendous opportunity for first-hand experience in a world-renowned pharmaceutical company through this program," said
The Medical Student Rotation Program is a four-week experiential learning program. Through real-world projects and workshops, students become directly involved with various departments within Lilly, such as research, clinical trial development, medical affairs, regulatory, bioethics, and patient safety. Students also have the opportunity to meet and network with Lilly leaders.
Learning about drug development, healthcare careers
The rotation program is designed around the student-centric curriculum and is guided by experienced, knowledgeable mentors at Lilly who help students explore drug development and diverse career options in healthcare. Through these experiences, students learn about the pharmaceutical industry and its place in the practice of medicine.
